    The sentence sounds a little strange to me. I'd write either:
    I am not used to travelling (BrE spelling) far
    .
    or:
    I am not use to travelling frequently.

    1. How can I use {(I'm not used to + (verb-ing)} in the past tense. Please translate change the sentence as an example.
    (At that time) I wasn't used to travelling far/frequently.
    2. How can I use {(I'm not used to + (verb-ing)} in the future tense. Please translate change the sentence as an example.
    It would be a little strange to talk about being used to something in the future. You'd be more likely to talk about the possibility of getting used to it:
    I haven't travelled much in my life, but my new job involves a lot of business trips. I'll get used travelling so much, I suppose.


    Note that most grammarians today consider Will + bare infinitive to be one way of expressing the future, not a future tense.
